It's a wonderful world

I sit with my laptop well on my lap ;) my kindle right next to me on the chair with the page of the book I'm currently reading open and a dozen plus other pages open on my browser and I wonder how I ended up on this page.
It's  not like I have no reason to be here but I've been gone for so long it feels like I'm sneaking into my own house.

All around me wonderful things are happening, needless to say a lot has been happening in my life but I am so thankful.

I have a father's love that never fades
I have a wonderful nuclear family that loves me
I have a special group of great friends that I won't trade for anything
I have fun and lovely neighbors
I have a great boss at work

Hmm....how do you reconnect with a friend you disconnected from?
Ps: I miss you and hope one day we'll be great friends again

I'm glad to be alive yet another year! It's a really great feeling to wake up and realize it is another day, another month, another year and know yes I'm still alive and well.


So taking in everything I'm just so excited to be able to tick off the days on the calender of yet another year.

Last year's theme for me was about being intentional, this year is about making the most of every opportunity and resource available to me. It's a great way to continue my last year theme and make it even better this year. I will also try to share more this year.

In the spirit of making the most of this year and sharing, I invite you to check out the New Year Acceleration 2013 Summit it is a  free live online event so you can watch it from home. It brings together 10 of the top success trainers and speakers. It is hardly possible to be too trained so just check it out, you may learn a thing or two.

Have a wonderful 2013!

Are you thankful?

Looking back at all the years gone by, there is always a mix of questions, laughs, some sad moments and the times you just wonder.
Some things you find closure for others you close it yourself by just closing the door and walking away, though you still wonder about those sometimes; did you make a right call or could you have tried just a little bit more.
Well get with the program, I tell myself, you'll never know it's all in the past. All you've got now is TODAY and what you chose to do with it.
If you really are sincere with yourself there is so much to be thankful for even in the place of the questions and puzzles with missing bits.You've got to be thankful you have a today to talk about, you've got your mind intact that's why you can even question yesterday, you are healthy else nothing else would matter in the light of the pain you are going through.

So for me, I'll just say:
Through the storms and the rains
Though the answers don't come
Though nothing goes as planned
I'm still thankful

Through the pains and the aches
Through the sleepless nights
Though I can't see how the story ends
I'm still so thankful

Thankful for the pain, it only made me strong
Thankful for the aches, it makes me appreciate the quiet no drama days
Thankful for the storms, it makes the sun so much more beautiful
Even for the rains cos it washes away the tears of yesterday
Who needs answers when I can smile
Why won't I just enjoy the bliss that comes with the spontaneous events

So if you've been offended by me this year
If I didn't keep in touch as much
If you just didn't like my too bright smile
Or my too quiet days
If you just couldn't understand what I'm about It is ok,
I apologize
I can't promise to change those things, Yes! I am work in progress
and the One doing the work is just fine with the place I'm at and he pace I've moved at
and I am happy being me, it is the most delightful place to be
A place where I am at  ease with God and me
So Yes! though It's been some year for me
I look forward eagerly to what tomorrow brings be it pain, sun or fun
I'm still thankful!

Good one God!

It's another beautiful day gradually widing down. I know where I was this time last year and it wasn't good in any way.
But here I am today,  it's not a perfect place, but it's a really thankful place.
My thoughts and everything within me screams PRAISE!

This song  by Lara George shows a bit of my heart.

It is 18 days of praise for me!

Roll out the gong!

Before I start this I just need everyone to know that my Dad is an awesome man, one I believe everyone should know. Knowing all I know of him, I wonder how he became the wonderful man he is. He is my hero, was my hero as a lil girl and as an adult, I know without a doubt that he's got some super human powers, still wondering when I'll find out where he hides his super hero cloak.

(I wonder why most of the songs and poems allude to mothers only)

'Nough said.

There's an amazing woman behind this guy
She's been his girl for about 32 odd years
She is sweet and mild mannered many say
I said she is the disciplinarian within my first decade in life

Then we formed a wired sort of friendship in the next decade, where I gisted with so much and got into trouble just about as often as I opened my mouth ( you woulda thought I would learn to shut up)
After which we grew to respect each other a lot more.

I met this woman again a year ago and let me just say she left me wondering, who is this woman?

Growing up, I bet we knew the "song" 'who sat and watched my infant head when sitting on my cradle bed...'

Well if it is any comfort I can't quite picture her as that woman who shed tears that I might die

But just about a year ago, I met this fearless warrior, she just about doggedly beat death at it's game, she gave the doctors a run for their money and the nurses a picture of what a real nurse does (she's a retired nurse)

She stood guarding my bed for 18 nightmarish days calling out orders and shooting out instructions, declaring war and engaging heaven that nobody dared disobey her not even me in a near unresponsive state could escape her instructions of "Darlyn hold my hand", "squeeze my hand if you can hear me" ," Darlyn answer me it's your Mum" (like I dare forget LOL)

So in case you don't know who I've been talking about all this while now you know.
She is my Mum

My fearless warrior who stood and fought a faceless enemy relentlessly that I should not die.

Not once did I see her discouraged, not once did her smile waver, when I'm alert she's all alert and attentive. On few occasions I woke up during the night, there she is sitting in this small excuse for a single sitter chair trying her best to sleep, she did this for the entire duration of my sojourn in the hospital.
She would just to my side the minute she sees me trying to get up.

Getting back home she monitored my every step. She would come into the room to look in on me in the dead of the night, with my Dad tip toeing right behind her. Oh how I love these wonderful ones I call family.

Happy birthday Mum! The world got an angel the day you were born, your presence assures me that Dad and us your sons and daughters have a full time guarding angel.

A grateful daughter

Too loved to be stressed

Love is a noun and a verb

Love is the name of God, it is who God is, it is also what He does. It is for love that he made us and the same reason he redeemed us.

Love is what our lives should therefore be about. Not the big miracles, not fixing others, not the cards and sweet nothings, not even for the big revivals. No real change can take place without love. And love is not love just because you say it. It all lies in your actions.

Love is an action word!

Christ didn't wait for us to love him before he died for us. He didn't keep a tab of all the things we do wrong and demand we set up a solution or accept we are wrong before he can love us.

Rather he loved us and walked with us right where we were. In our sin and shame, He identified with us.

Amazing love oh what sacrifice the son of God was given for me that I might live.

So before charging into our day's activity today, let's take a moment to reflect on the love that has brought us all the way. Show God you love him today, not just by saying it but by doing! You have not seen God, but you can see your spouse, your child, that friend, the colleague, that subordinate and the domestic help too, show them love in how you talk to them, in the time you spend with them, in how you react to their errors, show love in correction- it's not about keeping track of wrong doing.

By this shall all men know you are my disciples if you love one another.
